We got lucky. Went for dinner around 830pm and didn’t have to wait for a table but they were quite busy. The music is really really loud. We have to lean in to the middle of the table to hear each other. Their motto is...More

We showed up at 4:45 and the restaurant opens at 5, we went around the block for a drink and came back at 5:15 to find no room in this very small restaurant. There were 5 of us and we could not make a reservation....More

The atmosphere and the food we're great. The one draw was the show rate at shucking the oyster during the oyster happy hour. The best oyster Caesar I've ever had.

When compared to other oysters that I have had (all of the major places in Toronto, Montreal) these are hands down the best. Some people may be hesitant given the lack of west coast selection, but these are the freshest Oysters I have had. Cocktails...More

yes there are oysters but there is a flare for fusion and a lean for tex mex here. The food, though a bit strange, is quite good. Young vibe, a bit loud but a great meal.

The Adelaide Oyster House is not a large restaurant, but it is definitely worth your time to try and get a table. We went to the restaurant as soon as they opened to make a reservation for that evening. They gave us a round-about time...More

We had a reservation here, but thankfully I made a mistake in my trip itinerary and we showed up here a day early. We never even set foot inside. Just standing in the doorway, my ear were starting to bleed from the level of the...More

They will tell you reservations only for 6 or more and not after 6:30. And if 6 don't show up you get charged for those absent. Don't let that put you off though - it is a small place so they have to have some rules.
